Ive recently discovered this little diamond, and im still fairly new to the inner workings. I know how to stream the music from the live music archive, but how do I download it in a format where its actually stored on my computer and i can burn it, e-mail it, etc.? when you click 'download' on the website, it just puts an icon where you save it to, and when you click on the icon, it just opens up the default player and streams the music. please help me, this will help expand my already growing music library

It depends on a few things...if you're trying to download Grateful Dead soundboard recordings, those are a special case here and are stream-only. For every other band, there should be a "Lossless" column next to the song titles in the main area of the page - that's what you want to download (right click/save as).

Drew's advice also works if you want to grab everything at once; like he said, the "download" link for the complete show in lossless format is still disabled.

Use Firefox and the DownThemAll extension. The link to download all the lossless files hasn't been implemented yet (last I checked). DTA will let you select all the .flacs or .shns (which is what you want if you're going to burn to cd), and download them all at once.
